Human IFN-kappa Antibody Summary
Accession # Q90W0
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
IFN-kappa in Human Skin. IFN-? was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human skin using Mouse Anti-Human IFN-? Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB102471) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in keratinocytes.

Interferon kappa, also known as IFN-kappa, is a 207 aminoacids protein that in humans is encoded by the IFNK gene. IFN-kappa is a member of the type I interferon family which also includes IFN-alpha, -beta, -epsilon, and -omega. Type I interferons are a group of related glycoproteins that play an important role in host defenses against viral infections. Human IFN-kappa has been detected in keratinocytes, monocytes, and monocyte-derived dendritic cells and is reported to have contact-dependent antiviral activity. Human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 oncogene expression, which is necessary for the development of cervical cancer, has been shown to down-regulate human IFN-kappa expression.
